Children’s Wooden Storage Rack Recalled By Jetmax International Following Child’s Death

WASHINGTON, D.C. – In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Jetmax International Ltd., of Irving, Texas is voluntarily recalling about 36,000 boy’s and girl’s storage racks with canvas totes.

The storage rack can tip over, posing an entrapment and suffocation hazard to young children.

CPSC has received one report of a death involving an 8-month-old boy who was asphyxiated after he pulled on the storage rack and it fell over on him. The top rail landed on the infant’s neck. No other incidents have been reported.

The storage rack is wooden with three levels and nine removable canvas totes. There are wooden handles on each side of the rack. The boy’s storage rack has natural color wood with red, yellow, green, and navy canvas totes. The girl’s storage rack has white colored wood with pink, yellow, lime, and purple canvas totes.

Wal-Mart sold the storage rack under the brand “Home Trend Kids 9 Canvas Bin Boy’s and Girl’s Organizers.”

The storage racks were manufactured in China.

They were sold at Wal-Mart stores nationwide from August 2004 through July 2005 and Ollie’s stores nationwide from July 2006 through June 2007 for about $40. Consumers should immediately stop children from using the recalled storage racks and contact Jetmax International to receive a free repair kit that adds stability to the base.

For additional information, contact Jetmax at (800) 689-2168 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT, visit the firm’s Web site at www.jlwoodenmfg.com, or email

Older hardware styles may allow the side to detach, and the crib design itself leads many parents to install the drop-side upside down, which can weaken newer hardware styles as well. For a complete list of model numbers and recalled crib styles, as well as pictures of the hardware styles, visit CPSC’s Simplicity / Graco Crib recall page. If you have the older style hardware, call Simplicity at 888-593-9274. If you have the new hardware, check to be sure the drop-side is installed correctly.
